Antazoline Hydrochloride + Tetiyzoline Hydrochloride
Temporary relief of the signs and symptoms of allergic conjunctivitis including conjunctival hyperaemia, chemosis and itching in adults and children above 2 years of age.
Antazoline is an anti histamine of the ethylenediamine class, which are selective H1-antagonist. Effects mediated by H1 receptors include the contraction of smooth muscle and the dilation and increased permeability of the capillaries.
Antihistamines, which act by blocking the H1 histamine receptor, are highly effective in providing relief of itching but are not very active in relieving the associated redness. The use of products combining an anti-histamine and a vasoconstrictor is well established in the symptomatic relief of allergic eye disease.
Tetryzoline is a sympathomimetic with alpha adrenergic activity. Its vasoconstrictive effect reduces redness and oedema in allergic conjunctivitis.
Dosage & Administration
Adults and adolescents: 1 drop 2 to 3 times daily upto 14 days. Children Colder than 2 years of age): No specific studies are available in this patient group. For possible systemic effects, the dosage should exceed to 1 to 2 drops per day. Not to be used in children below 2 years of age.
The eye drop should not be used for longer periods than 14 days as this may cause rebound hyperaemia and toxic follicular conjunctivitis.
